Over the Edge of Waikiki
Over the Edge: Saturday, November 2, 2013
You can't check off a bucket list sitting in an office.
Conquer your fears for a good cause and rappel 31 stories from the roof of the Sheraton Waikiki in support of our local Special Olympics athletes!
Better yet, form a team and SHARE THE DARE with your spouse, family member, friend, or co-worker.
Not only will you enjoy spectacular views of Waikiki Beach, but you'll be supporting an important cause - the athletes of Special Olympics Hawai'i!
Last minute sign-ups can still rappel and get an optional two week extension to the fundraising deadline by filling out the Credit Card Extension Form. This will allow you to secure your rappel spot and continue to raise funds until Nov. 18 - at which time your credit card will be charged the difference up to $1,000. This is strictly optional and not required to rappel if you have raised the minimum $1,000 fundraising goal by event day, Nov. 2.

3) Secure Your Rappel Spot
Once you reach the $1,000 minimum fundraising goal, you will be guaranteed a rappel spot and we will contact you to secure a rappel time.
Or you can secure your rappel spot and have two additional weeks to fundraise by filling out the Credit Card Extension Form. This is strictly optional, but will automatically secure your rappel spot by allowing Special Olympics Hawai'i to charge your credit card for the difference that you are unable to raise up to the $1,000 minimum on November 18, 2013.
4) Earn Incentives!
Rappellers who raise above and beyond the $1,000 minimum are eligible for some great incentive prizes.
$1,500 raised – $50 gift certificate to the Sheraton Waikiki for use at the hotel or any of its bars and restaurants.
$2,000 raised – Complimentary one-night stay at the Sheraton Waikiki for November 2, 2013 only (subject to room availability at the Sheraton)
5) Go Over the Edge!
This is a big building . . . the largest structure in Waikiki, that is. A rappel of 317 feet is huge by anyone’s standards. This rappel is something rock climbers, mountaineers, and fire fighters salivate over. It is definitely an extreme event and probably a once in a lifetime experience.
Why raise $1,000?
Special Olympics Hawai‘i’s programming costs approximately $1,000 per athlete annually. That's three seasons of year-round sports training and competition.
All of it is provided at no cost to our athletes and their families
Your participation in Over the Edge of Waikiki will one more intellectually disabled athlete in Hawai‘i to experience the joy of sports.
